    Hey Pick,

    though I don't have an Ampeg, I have recently swapped the 6550's for JJ/Tesla KT88's in my Aguilar DB728. My immediate impression was that the midrange was broader, a lot broader, and I think I felt a little more headroom, but the change, in this case, was more than I expected. Not that it's a bad change, I'm just going to have to work with the eq a bit before I make a final judgement.

    That, and I have a motorboating preamp tube that I have to track down. uugghh.

    They should fit.

    more on this soon.
